The first graphic novel tied to the Tui T. Sutherland middle-grade novel series Wings of Fire (see "Kids Comics Round-Up: What’s Hot, What’s Hotter") was released in January, and it topped everything except the all-powerful Dog Man, from Dav Pilkey, which took the top three slots.

The other new volume in the Top 20 for January was the latest Hilo volume, by Judd Winick.
